: Rotisserie Yes Siree!IBy Angie Bridgeslove rotisserie chicken. (RC) It doesn’tget any easier to get dinner on the tablethen to pick one up, serve alongside your favorite side salad or vegetable or even your kids favorite cheesy noodle dish and call it a day. However, what I really love the RC for is its versatility in the kitchen. You have an ingredient for a plethora of different dishes and half the work is done for you. You literally get your dish to the point of ready and add your chicken meat into the dish to warm it through and serve. Really couldn’t be more perfect for all your busy parents out there. Also, for added time management, I like to bring home the chicken and pull all the meat off and divide into a few zipper bags with its future uses already in mind.A few ideas to incorporate into your meal rotation using RC are soups, (makes a mean tortilla soup!) salads, casseroles, chilis, pasta bakes and sandwiches both cold and hot. If Ihad to come up with one negative, it would be that some chickens come pre seasoned pretty heavily and might have a higher sodium content. To remedy that, watch for other sodium in your recipe and adjust your seasoning to taste. This month I’m sharing with you a family favorite of ours-a curry andIhopeyoulikeitasmuchaswedo.

A beautiful deck is a clean deck, and from what I’ve learned from Barry Hagendorf of Deck and Patio Care – proper cleaning and sealing techniques are paramount.Proper cleaning procedures first require all items from the deck. Chances are your deck has been sealed before, especially if it’s older. As a result, the surface of the wood usually has a layer of old sealer, dirt, mildew and mold directly below the sealer layer of wood.Deck and Patio Care begins by spraying an environmentally safe, biodegradable stripping agent on the wood. Once saturated, Deck & Patio Care will powerwash the deck, including all railings and sides.After powerwashing is finished, thetechnicians will apply an oxalic-based wood brightener which neutralizes oxidations tannic acid in the wood.Once dry, the sealing process begins. The wood is sprayed with Ready Seal – an oil- based penetrating sealer. Normally, the first application will penetrate 1/8-1/4 inch into the wood. As the deck ages, the sealer will be pulled down into the wood. Resealing is recommended every 10-15 months after the previous seal. After the third year, you can reseal every other year.With nearly 30 years of experience, Barry Hagendorf and the experts at Deck and Patio Care can professionally clean and seal your deck, patio and outdoor space preparing it for countless summers to come.
